Intercropping Oats

It was a wet but busy weekend at Honeydale. Last year we under sowed wheat with a yellow trefoil and white clover winter cover crop, and this year we’ve direct drilled spring oats into the yellow trefoil and white clover. We’re now been topping it with mob-grazed sheep which works on two levels, saving us from having to roll it and also adding fertility to the land through the sheep’s dung. It’s the first time these fields have had livestock on them for decades so we’re looking forward to seeing an improvement.
